Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Battery draining possible electrical

I recently replaced the battery on my accord. I have also had the alternator checked which checked out fine. I am hearing clicking sounds coming from under the dash on the passenger side of the car and when this is happening, the abs light shines, the battery light comes off and on, and then the lights dim and go bright sporatically. The odometer and rpm gauge work only on occasion. I am at a loss after being told that the alternator and the battery are both good. Any help would be great.

New alternator and battery but still drains battery and dies while driving.

Possibly a bad fuse which is not allowing the power from your new alternator to make it back to the battery. Do you have alternator voltage making it to the battery when running?

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing

IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

I have a new alternator on a 1992 Honda Accord, but my battery keeps going dead?

The battery may not be holding charge. If you drained your battery a few times because of a bad alternator, it is possible to destroy the cells in the battery causing one or more of them to no longer hold a charge. Most batteries are manufactured to be cycled or completely drained 8 times. Other factors such as excessive load and age can decrease that number. You may also have a faulty voltage regulator that can result in overcharging and destroying the battery. Charge the battery on portable charger and have it tested. Also, It is possible that since most alternators are rebuilt they can be bad out of the box.

Headlights causing battery drain while driving?

Though your car seems fine without using the headlights, you have a charging problem, and need to get a couple things checked out. First make sure your battery connections are clean and tight. Your alternator belt should also be checked to make sure it is serviceable and properly tightened too. Your alternator should be checked under load, and lastly, your battery too. Most auto parts stores, such as auto zone,will check your parts for free,so you should only be spending money on what is broken!

1983 honda accord alternator not charging the battery. drains after few minutes

Sounds like you regulator points are staying closed, thus causing the no-charge condition as well as the severe drain on your battery. Check the fusable links, the ES1 and ES2 motors were famous for this in 82-85, but if they are fine, replace your alternator.

1989 Honda Accord charging issue

It could be a multitude of problems, however the first thing I'd do is check that battery.

A lot of times, batteries just get wore out and even while being charged; they aren't able to help keep the system stable enough. Even with the alternator pushing out the right amperage, it may actually be causing more problems as it's not holding enough of a charge. Usually when the battery is fully charged the alternator will only power the vehicle itself while not charging the battery.

I'd try the battery first, then look into the wiring off the alternator. Also check for bad terminals, wire connections, or even corrosion on a ground contact.

Check the battery terminals for corrosion. Remove both the positive and negative leads to the battery, and use a brass brush to remove the salt-looking build up. For added security, you can purchase dielectric grease from an auto parts store to ensure a good connection.

If this does not solve the problem, Bring the battery to batteries plus for a free battery check. If your battery is the issue, it may need to be replaced. If none of these solutions works, it may be an alternator problem or something unrelated to the electrical system (such as a fuel filter).
